Wow, what a start to a wonderful summer in Crested Butte, Colorado. The snows are melting, the aspen are sprouting new leaves and the flowers are starting to bloom. I have been getting out to play on the trails and wanted a chance to share some of my pictures with you. This picture was taken along the Lower Loop Trail right outside of town. The Lower Loop is a great trail to get those legs going again whether you are mountain biking, hiking or jogging. The thing I love about this trail is that there is not a lot of elevation gain so one can enjoy this trail without too much effort as it wonders along the Slate River. If you go far enough on this trail you will get to the Oh Be Joyful Falls. This time of year kayakers are traveling from all over to paddle these waters. I myself find this a little crazy since the river is a series of continuous falls and hazards, but I love to watch these brave souls demonstrate their talents.
